    just wondering if anyone considers themself a label whore, only wearing certain brands of clothing and nothing else..........

    I for one feel the man makes the clothes........NOT.......the clothes make the man........

    But then again I love jeans and only wear a certain make of jeans. Karl Kani, DKNY, and Desiel.........but I don't care for shirts I wear these $5 solid color T-shirt that I buy from SAM's Wholesale........

    I used to be but not any more.

    I have trouble buying clothes to fit me. 27/28 inch waist 40 chest. Pants are hard to find and shirts don't angle in (athletic cut) with America putting on so much weight... most clothes these days are cut for fuller figured men.

    I've found one place that have clothes that fit me perfectly and am now stuck buying from them because of it. Luckily their styles fit my sense of style.

    If I can find something that actually FITS WELL I don't care who makes it. Beggars can't be choosers.

    For years, i only wore State Street sneakers - $20, looked nice, easy to find... i just found L.L. Bean's identical equivalent and they feel just that much more comfortable... For $10 more, i could probably get used to them...

    Cherry Coke. i don't need to go any further...

    Brown & Williamson... :)

    Ferrari, of course, but i haven't acquired any of their cars just yet... :)

    I buy t shirts 3 for 10 dollars --downtown LA. Pants from old navy, no more than 15$/per.

    I am one of the cheapest SOBs around, and hanging out with my friend Uro is not helping with the cheapness.

    So label whore? Yes, walmart labels.

    If I was a 310 baller, then I could probably answer yes to this thread. But I don't have that kind of cha-ching in the bank account.

    I'm not a label whore, but I like these shoes for just walking around. Ultra comfortable. $20.

    I call them my Big Black Dickies.

    Clothing labels come and they go, I don't get cought up in that arena of label whoring. Nor do I care to get fleeced at department stores with that high markup. I will find the same thing through wholesale connections if I really want it. My sister used to work for Federated Inc., which was nice while it lasted!
    If it looks sharp, clean and professional, it's mine.

    I'm an anti label whore. There are brands I'll refuse to wear at all cost for one reason or the other. I don't go searching for particular brands to wear though.

    Actually, the clothes come from Seoul. More expensive than China, but cashmere super 180's aren't exactly available just anywhere...
